1. Love this post, Diane! I so agree! When I learned this 20 years ago, it revolutionized my prayer life and my spiritual life and growth as a whole. Amen!! Amen!!

  2. Thank you for shedding light on this aspect of prayer. Great linking up with you at Grace and Truth.

  3. I have loved the image of the veil being torn since I learned the significance several years ago. It is hard for me to be still. My mind just goes and goes and goes. I’m so easily distracted when I try to sit in His presence and focus on Him and try to listen. It is definitely something I am aware I need to work on. Great post!

  4. Great post! Prayer is work! I agree though, we talk too much and listen too little. Thanks for linking up at InstaEncouragements and thanks for the Tweetout! 🙂

  5. “Prayer is a conversation with God, not a monologue.” Wise reminders here, Diane. It is only with listening do we hear and see His path before us. Happy to stop by from Crystal’s and to share this!

  6. Great post on prayer, Diane. How true prayer is often treated as a drive-thru order. I love the idea of remembering it’s an exchange with God. Talking and listening, real two-way communication. Thanks for the reminder!

  7. Hey Diane. Just dropping in to say thanks for linking up with Grace and Truth and to let you know that I’ve chosen this post to be featured tomorrow on Candidly Christian.

  8. Wow this is so powerful . This just opened my eyes prayer IS a conversation with God and it’s about having a personal relationship with Him. We just need to slow down and learn to listen to His voice.

  9. I’v been struggling a lot lately, especially believing that I can have a intimate dialogue with Jesus. I met some psychologists that say that it’s dangerous speaking to God and or trying to hear from him, they think I’m crazy, bless their hearts???

    1. People who do not understand prayer will often say things that may be well-intentioned but can be hurtful. It sounds foolish to them (and the Bible told us it would).
      God always hears you and you can speak to Him whenever and wherever you like. Now, I wouldn’t say I would sit around waiting for an audible answer from a thundering cloud LOL But God answers us in other ways and people who do not know Him will not often understand that still small voice.
